This example shows how to get a Hammer-Aitoff map projection for the shapes loaded from the Shapefiles (Countries.shp, Countries.dbf).

To create a custom map projection, do the following:

using System;
using System.Windows.Forms;
using DevExpress.XtraMap;

namespace CustomProjection {
    public partial class Form1 : Form {
        const string filepath = "../../Data/Countries.shp";

        GeoMapCoordinateSystem CoordinateSystem {
            get { return (GeoMapCoordinateSystem)mapControl1.CoordinateSystem; }

        VectorItemsLayer MapLayer {
            get { return (VectorItemsLayer)mapControl1.Layers["MapLayer"]; }

        ShapefileDataAdapter Adapter {
            get { return (ShapefileDataAdapter)MapLayer.Data; }

        public Form1() {
            CoordinateSystem.Projection = new HammerAitoffProjection();

            Uri baseUri = new Uri(System.Reflection.Assembly.GetEntryAssembly().Location);
            Adapter.FileUri = new Uri(baseUri, filepath);
